Web Alert: Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks – update on Belgium and the Cayman Islands

27 January 2017

The club refers to its recent circulars and web alerts (all of which can be found here), on the Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks (the Nairobi Convention) which came into force on 14 April 2015.


The Nairobi Convention will enter into force in Belgium on 17 April 2017.

From this date, those members with ships flying the Belgian flag will be able to obtain a certificate attesting that insurance or other financial security is in place from the Belgian flag state authority.

Cayman Islands

The UK has not yet extended the Nairobi Convention to the Cayman Islands.

We will continue to monitor developments concerning the Nairobi Convention and keep members updated.

The Standard Club is always on hand to assist.  If a member has any queries in relation to this issue, they should not hesitate to call their usual club contact.
